Tottenham will welcome fan representation on board after furious protests over European Super League fiasco

TOTTENHAM will welcome fan representation on their board after furious protests over the European Super League fiasco.

Spurs were one of 12 clubs to sign up to the controversial project, which was met by widespread condemnation across the continent.

Spurs supporters joined counterparts from Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal by marching on their respective stadiums to protest the news.

And the Super League quickly crumbled as club chiefs performed dramatic U-turns after seeing the fury of the fans.

Daniel Levy and Co have now revealed they will bring elected fan representative into meetings as part of a new Club Advisory Panel.

And they hope it can restore faith of supporters after the Super League mess.

A statement read: “It’s important to underline that we entered the ESL with the expectation that the format, rules and structures would evolve through dialogue with key parties, namely the Premier League, FA, UEFA, FIFA and, crucially, fans. 

“It should never have been conveyed with certainty when it was in fact a framework agreement for consultation going forward.

“We should have challenged and reconsidered the annual access system. We wholeheartedly regret that we involved the Club and that the legal process itself meant we were unable to consult our fans early on – we apologise unreservedly.

“We have all learnt lessons from recent events and have reviewed fan engagement as a priority. 


“As a result we shall be liaising with key stakeholders and establishing a Club Advisory Panel, comprised of elected representatives from the different constituencies of our fanbase, inclusive and reflective of our fans’ diversity. 

“The Chair of this Panel will be appointed annually as a full Non-Executive of the Club Board. 

“We believe this provides for authentic, genuine representation and will ensure fans are at the heart of Club decision-making, something we greatly welcome.

“The selection criteria, mandate and constitution will be developed by independent advisors in consultation with fan groups to ensure it is truly representative of our supporter base.”
